credentials. lou: governor run the show and a bank statement? would that satisfy you? >> i think obama is going to be lucky that foreign policy is not part of the first debate. you have to wait until october october 16th. only domestic policy. the first debate, of what will be surface impressions. this is the last time mitt romney will have a chance to make a good first impression of the bunch of others who have only seen -- >> what should you try to convey in that first impression with millions of americans? >> presidential stature, the ability to the executive as governor of massachusetts and the business world. lou: to the obama have presidential stature? >> he is the president. lou: that is presidential. i agree that he will be. the last four years he has been our president. lou: talking about governor romney. >> here is what i'm looking at for wednesday. that one of the first times president obama has been pushed the last four years. seven the white house have not served there. never tell the president reagan did not want to year. romney will respect the office of the presidency,
in governor romney's favor. >> almost 6 out of 10 americans think that obama will take this debate, romney goes in as under dog with low expectations, if he does well, he will exceed those expectations. i think he has a good chance of winning this debate. lou: what about, you made it clear, you are not overly impressed with the mr. obama's capabilities, he is no bill clinton in that regard. hollywood will be prompter-free. >> we've seen obama say there are 57 states in the union, then he goes, some kind of -- takes over his face, and it looks like he is caught in the lights like a deer. when he does not hit the ball in the sweet spot, he starts to crumble a little bit. because, the facade is so important to him. lou: you think that --- who is more gaffe prone? who has do you think the greater likelihood of committing, well significant mistake. >> i am sure romney does not offer $10,000 bet. lou: i remember governor perry's face. >> obama will have to think how many books do i have to sell to make $10,000. lou: did you see the pictures, sitting with a big wad of cash in his hand, president
and now independent and he does support president obama. governor, good to see you. to carl's point as well as lynn's and let's talk about this selection of paul ryan. you come from a state obviously with a very large older population, key voting bloc. they vote in big percentages. did he buy into, my choosing ryan, the medicare plan which now in every swing state shows not just that people favor president obama's approach but they favor it by double digits. this isn't even close. >> it's pretty stunning. i think the selection did make that a crystal clear choice between these two candidates. what's happening in florida, the latest poll has a nine-point advantage for president obama. and i think a large part of the reason is due to the medicare and social security issue. but i really think it comes down to something that carl was just talking about. this tape that was done of candidate romney when he was at the fund-raiser was extremely revealing and now has become terribly devastating to the romney campaign. and what it shows is, i think, a callousness and an attitude toward 47% of
candidates campaigning across the battleground state of virginia. governor romney in springfield, mr. obama in virginia beach. it is the third time in a week they are both hitting the same stage. shane deapril is the editor of campaigns and elections magazine. democrats are pretty confident about virginia this time. should they be, shane? >> we've seen some dueling polls out of virginia. there are some that show the president with a clear lead. some show the contest quite a bit tighter. but i think what you're seeing with amount of time both campaigns are spending in virginia it is such a key state when it comes to the electoral college calculation for both campaigns. essentially in my sort of electoral college predictor i have president obama at 237 electoral votes right now. so that means the three really big swing states, ohio, virginia, and florida, they could be really killers for mitt romney if he can't find a way to wrestle two of those away from president obama. if the president manages to get florida and virginia in his column, he is over the top of 270 electoral votes. if he manag
when president obama and governor romney go head to head a little more than 48 hours from right now. welcome to "america live," everyone, i'm megyn kelly. a new survey of likely voters finds that almost one in five say that they can still be swayed to vote for either candidate here. and some of those wavering voters say they are waiting for these debates to help them decide. the headline here according to bloomberg, about 18% of the electorate is, quote, persuadable, and that is a big number considering that early voting has already begun. chris stirewalt is our fox news digital politics editor and host of "power play" on foxnews.com. so the campaigns have got to see that, in particular the romney camp, as good news, chris, since he is shown as trail anything a lot of these swing state polls as well. >> well, certainly it's not good news if you're president obama. if that's true, if you really have 18% persuadable voters, this comes after fife months -- five months of the most stained, negative attack, most personal barrage against a candidate by an incumbent president that we've ev
, named cnn hero of the year. >>> you have heard from both president obama and governor mitt romney. you have seen the spin from both sides, and since we know you sometimes need the lighter side of politics, who doesn't, we have ben glee, comedian, actor, and host of the podcast last week on earth. he joins us from los angeles, ben, let's get right to it. camps on both sides seeming to manage expectations. is that like trying to make sure that each side doesn't step on a land mine kind of thing? good idea? >> yeah. exactly. they're trying to put out fires before they happen, which is not even how fire departments operate. but it's pretty amazing how every year they expect us to believe this person can take our nation and in a lot of ways the planet into a new day, can lead us through the most difficult times we're experiencing in modern history. yet also we should believe they're not great in front of a camera. don't expect too much though. they're also a little nervous in front of people. >> everybody keeps talking -- >> only when explaining their policies. >> each side keeps talking ab
of the very first debate between president obama and governor mitt romney. fox news alert for you right now. this a news conference underway concerning breaking news in the presidential race. a pennsylvania judge decide tog puing to put a voter i.d. law on hold. this is a ruling that has upset conservatives already. some are calling it a victory for voter shaun. eric shawn is live with here. >> reporter: they are calling this decision a big win, the aclu. at pennsylvania when you show up at the polls in november you will be asked, or you could be asked to show your voter i.d., but understand this new ruling you don't have to show it. both sides indeed calling this a victory. it comes from commonwealth judge robert simpson. he backed the law originally and let voter i.d. stay but it's not enforced in order to vote. he blocked part of the law that requires people without an i.d. to vote by provisional ballot if they provide documentation within six days. he feared that could diseven franchise voters if people couldn't come up with the proof. he's also concerned about the distribution of id's
for president so i do not want to disagree with president obama or governor romney on iran, but we cannot allow them to acquire nuclear weapons. but what happens afterwards? they do not call it the persian gulf for nothing. we got worked up when we launched cruise missiles in the mid-1980s in libya. the knockout pan am 103. what do we do afterwards? it is not as simple as saying, "we're going in there." i think we up to be conscious of what it means we draw a line. >> thank you, senator kerrey. senator fischer. >> i would reiterate that we need to have leadership in this country when it comes to foreign policy. we have not seen that in the last four years. we're witnessing the turmoil, which i believe is due in part to that. we have seen terrorism in al qaeda resurface in libya. this world is not a safe place. our world has changed in the last 11 years, becoming less safe. if we do not have strong messages sent from washington, and makes it even less safe. >> the next question is for senator fischer. >> it has been said the greatest threat to america right now is is accumulating debt, $16 trill

-span. governor mitt romney will be at the clinton global initiative this morning giving a talk about foreign affairs at 9:00 a.m. eastern time. look for our coverage on c-span 2. president obama will travel over to the clinton global initiative to give his speech around noon eastern time. go to c-span.org for details of coverage of those events in new york. let's go to new york state, democratic caller, david. caller: good morning. i understand that the united nations has not been able to put together a peace plan for its and for israel palestine. palestine is not really a country because it does not have defined borders. israel does have defined borders and has received missile attacks. ahmadinejad has said terrible things about president bush and about is rael. this nation has not backed away from israel, but this president does not seem to want to meet with him. the u.n. does have power and a military force, but they are not exercising it. host: you think on the mideast peace process, that the u.n. has failed at? caller: absolutely. not only has it failed, but the people in the middle eas
to the view. he has gone on "60 minutes." there is not a lot of difference between david letterman asked obama how much he weighs and steve cropp's questions on "60 minutes pierre host: both the president and governor romney were featured on "60 minutes." were fair, the romney's online of withkelly. is there a parallel their debt guest: both candidates both did a "60 minutes." that asked them similar questions on the program. on the day that mitt romney was under attack by everybody, steve croft asking obama if mitt romney screw up -- that is the kind of thing that cbs is not holding him accountable. both candidates will do the syrupy things but mitt romney is doing press conferences and obama has not been doing press conferences. you can look at the research on this. president obama has done more one-on-one said downs then press conferences. he likes to control the message and he would rather sit down with barbara walters and have her ask them what superpower he would like to have. host: fredericksburg, va., an airline for democrats -- -- on our line for democrats -- caller: i get tired of th
advantage over obama. clinton had lost the governorship after being the youngest governor in the country. >> he governed in arkansas for ten years. dealt with conservative democrats and a very small republican party. >> the decision to turn came from when he lost in '80 and it was clear to both bill and hillary if they stayed on the hard left they'd be a one-term president as carter had been. the ability to turn goes back to what dee dee just said. being a governor, he and i always could communicate. we had some very tough, brutal fights. but there was some, we both had this compartmentalization that allows us to say okay. that was a really tough press conference. now how do we work this out? >> right. i sense real negotiations require you to listen carefully to the other person. not agree with him but listen carefully. try to figure out is there something we can start building to a yes on? and i sense that obama finds it really painful to listen to people because it's not who he is, not how he functions. >> i think to listen to republicans, i think again just because, dee dee, you said
looking worse and worse for governor romney. there's some polls out today which have obama up by double digits and florida and ohio. that's just not a situation. now, they may be wrong, the polls certainly don't have to be right. but it's a bad situation. on the other hand, debates can change a lot of things. so this is a big deal, these debates. >> obviously you're a supporter of president obama. but what do you think that mitt romney needs to do in this debate to reach out to people? >> he's going to have to give us a coherent view of what he thinks. i think his biggest problem is he's all over the map all the time. the 47% thing was really damaging and then he came back and said, well, no, i'm for everybody. then he said that people could get, you know, were had universal health insurance. if they need health insurance, they go to the emergency room. that doesn't sit well. >> i've got to watch you like a hawk. i enjoyed having you on kudlow the other night. double digits to you is nine points. how does that work? >> close, close. >> you can't round up when it is nine. do you round up
be responding? >> it is interesting. if you peel away governor romney's position, there is not a lot of different speech in him and president obama. both iran and obama believe in supporting the opposition. the administration -- but romney and obama believe in supporting the opposition. i think this administration has recognized that the most important thing we can do is create a unified political opposition so that the when the sovereign regime falls, we will have a transition as soon as possible. without a clear exit strategy, which by the way it romney said it is how he would think about military affairs, the president understands we need to keep all options on the table and be cautious about it. there are many ways to make the situation worse, rather than better. we want to get the diplomatic contacts read so that there can be a smooth transition while also -- diplomatic context so that there can be a switcsmooth transition. this administration has been at the forefront on putting pressures on the regime. i am not sure that romney will read position is that much different. >> i w

of the supreme court upholding obama care is, is that those of us in the tea party who think obama care's a disaster for the country, we're all going to turn out because we know the only way we can stop it now is by electing governor romney. >> that's 53-43 or something. that's what i don't understand, there seems to be a disconnect. it seems to be 53-43 against, i don't know why the election -- it's not a single-issue vote obviously. >> i still think the election goes our way. i've been predicting all along that really i think the election's over and romney's won, because the mood of the country still is very concerned about the debt but also very concerned about not having jobs, having 20 million people out of work and so i think all of that goes in our favor still. >> senator, very quickly, and joe alluded to this earlier, this idea of the divide what paul ryan in some respects was supposed to represent. do you think that romney has tacked too far to the middle? in the past week or two he's talked about taxes and suggested that actually on upper and middle-class earners that their ta
